‘Surely no man would take up my profession if it were not that danger attracts him.’ In The Casebook, you can read the final twelve stories that Sir ArthurConan Doyle wrote about his brilliant detective. They are perhaps themost unusual and the darkest that he penned. Treachery, mutilationand the terrible consequences of infidelity are just some of thethemes explored in these stories, along with atmospheric touches ofthe gothic, involving a bloodsucking vampire, crypts at midnightand strange bones in a furnace.The collection His Last Bow features some of Sherlock Holmes’ mostdramatic cases, including the vicious revenge intrigue connectedwith ‘The Red Circle’ and the insidious murders in ‘The Devil’s Foot’.The title story recounts how Sherlock Holmes is brought out ofretirement to help the government foil a German plot on the eve ofthe First World War.These two fascinating sets of stories make a glorious farewell to thegreatest detective of them all and his erstwhile companion,Dr Watson.
